Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster, I did pick the lip sleeping mask and the lip glowy balm in the same gummy bear flavor. Some have picked up a grape 🍇 candy flavor but my nose hasn’t gotten grape yet. 🤷🏻‍♀️ But with the peach lip glowy balm, I also didn’t pick up a peach scent either. The scent is more pronounced in the lip sleeping mask and last night it smelled sweet and fruity-ish.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi ok good to know! I did pick up the grapefruit balm, the gummy bear mask and the sweet candy I believe lip mask

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@lmaster, ohhh, you picked some good ones!! The grapefruit lip balm is my favorite scent of the bunch! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi I really love the grapefruit lip mask, so I figured I'd go ahead and try the balm 😊

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I've definitely been curious about the new flavor @itsfi - interesting to hear it's grape-y

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Kim888, I know others have picked up a grape scent; I can’t seem to for whatever reason. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Maybe it’s because I associate grape with the flavor of children’s cough syrup and I don’t get that scent from it. I can pick up a sweet fruit scent. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

So glad to see the new flavor of Laneige popping up, @itsfi. As a gummy candy lover, I'm intrigued by this new flavor!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I love gummies too @quspork! 💕 It’s been a while since I’ve had some; may need to change that. 😉 Maybe a visit to the Sugarfina website is in order. 😆 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II



I was super disappointed about the LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask Original since it just felt like it was sitting on my lips.  I'm super interested in the new Laneige Gummy Bear lip balm tho!  I'm a sucker for that purple color and would love to try that gummy bear scent/ flavor!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@RAWRitsRED, oh, I’m sorry to hear that the Laneige lip mask feels like it sits on top of your lips; I’ve heard that from a couple of people. The lip balm has a lighter consistency than the lip sleeping mask so it would be less moisturizing, but do you also get the same feeling of the product just sitting on top of your lips with the balm as you do the lip sleeping mask?

I’m trying to think of another balm that has a purple tint to it but am drawing a blank at the moment. BITE made a lavender lip mask but my recollection is that it has more of a pinkish hue. Nothing else is coming to mind at the moment, but if I think of something, I’ll let you know. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II


I haven't tried their balm yet but maybe I'll try it out since there's a sale coming up!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I love your post @itsfi ! I meant grape candy, I suppose I was thinking in French! Raisin = Grape 🙄. I’m so glad that the BIO-CELL Brightening Mask improved your skin! Your reviews are amazing, I love the details you include in them ! 🧐❤️

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Aww thank you @keana1! 🤗 That’s very kind of you to say. It’s fun to talk about masks. 


Oh, I should have made the connection with raisin = grape in. French. All those years of French and I missed it. Thank you for sending this one my way - Bio-cellulose masks feel especially nice when my skin is irritated. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@keana1 @Glad to know you think it smells like grape candy too 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Maybe @itsfi will eventually agree with both of us @SportyGirly125 ! 🍇💜

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@keana1, I don’t pick up grape specifically for some reason. Great that you @SportyGirly125 do. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I can understand @itsfi . I’ve never been able to smell the peach in the LaNeige Peach lip balm and you’re able to! 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  Happy to hear you enjoyed the sheet mask! Those results sound wonderful! This is yet another line of masks on my list to try sometime 👍😃

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Thank you @Shosh85! 🤗 Bio-cellulose masks have been nice after a peel or when my skin is irritated.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

F is for Fresh




The Oozoo Fresh Capsule Royal Jelly Mask

This mask has a capsule of serum on the front of the package, that you are supposed to firmly press, releasing it into the pouch. After bursting the capsule, you are to massage the pouch, ensuring it all gets distributed evenly. This cotton sheet mask is soaked with serum that has a light, sweet honey type of smell. The mask  fit well and was just a little too long at the chin. It was comfy to wear and had good adherence, just the extra length at the chin popped up a couple times. I had it on for about 40 minutes. When I removed it the little bit of serum that was left was a little tacky, but it all absorbed pretty quickly. My complexion looked clearer and brighter, my skin felt smooth and hydrated and had a very nice glow.

This one never gets old. I will probably always continue to repurchase! I was so happy to find it at TJ Maxx!





Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@Shosh85 I will be using mine soon thanks to you 🤗💕
